In major metropolitan areas, electric vertical take-off and landing vehicles (eVTOLs), are a promising solution to rising traffic, congestion and vehicle emissions challenges. However, the industry needs electric infrastructure that can handle the highly distributed, yet often concentrated, charging volume.
Black & Veatch, working with the National Institute of Aerospace, on behalf of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), completed an Urban Air Mobility Electrical Infrastructure Study to:
